    wondering about companion crops for winter oats , has any one tried putting buckwheat in with oats, got a few bags left over n wondering if it would bring any benefits to the job, obviously killing them out wont take a lot once the temperature drops ,

    Depending on your herbicide program and weed burden I would have thought buckwheat is worth a try. What about spring linseed, spring beans, spring peas? Most should die over winter or can kill. I think you could probably keep linseed. Maybe try some winter linseed and harvest both? Only ideas not recommendations
